major project: rio 2016

Planning and executing the Olympic Games is a major undertaking, to state the obvious, and AECOM has the job of master planning the exercise for Rio de Janeiro in 2016. 

As with all Olympic cities, Rio is planning for both the Games and the Legacy. The video below outlines the master plan and in the article "Olympics 2016 | Rio de Janeiro Brazil | AECOM" by Damian Holmes for World Landscape Architecture additional site plans show the intentions for 2016 and beyond.

Which is tougher? Creating a successful legacy after all the athletes have gone home. Very tough indeed.
